5th May 2020, Tuesday
Black clouds and thunder rumbling around when I got up this morning so I decided to delay my walk, hopefully it will clear up later.
I spent most of the day working (on my laptop) which was fine with me. At “beer” o’clock (I really need to find a new name for that) I tried the Carlsberg AF and was pleasantly surprised, it tasted way better than the strange perfumey San Miguel 0% (which I don’t think i’ll bother with again). Once again I also really enjoyed the large glass of ice/orange juice/diet lemonade that I had too. I’m figuring that I might just stick to that, especially if the shop runs out of Carlsberg AF (sidenote: why is it that if I find a product I like, shortly after the shop stops stocking it?…).
Veggie burger and oven roasted vegetables for dinner tonight, along with 1/2 of one of the wonderful pitta breads they make here in Cyprus. Perhaps i’m starting to obsess slightly but I couldn’t help noticing my OH’s alcohol consumption – he had a 500ml can of beer then at least 3 sizeable glasses of wine. I do worry about him, he’s consuming much more than the recommended weekly units. He’s always been a drinker, at times much heavier than now, but people have to decide for themselves if they want to make a change. He tells tales of his working days in London where it was the thing to do 747s – that is 7 pints at lunchtime, 4 pints after work and 7 pints in the pub in the evening. How is he not a raging alcoholic? He’s obviously not like me though, in that if i’m drinking my consumption gradually gets more and more as each week/month/year passes.
Meaningful May: Send friends a photo of a meaningful time you had together. I sent an old school photo to close friends – we all met when we were 11 and we started at a girls grammar school together, we are all 60 this year. I did much of my teenage (including underage) drinking with them and even now our get togethers are always fueled by copious amounts of Prosecco. I haven’t told them i’ve given up the booze yet…
